Has thrown a couple of races away by pulling himself up in front and his resolution wasn't tested when effectively gifted the race by the late fall of a rival when dropped back to around 2m at Sandown last month; what he'll find up the hill here remains to be seen but what isn't in doubt is that he has the ability to be in contention at the business end; a first-time visor replaces cheekpieces.

Hurdle/chase wins at 2m4f on soft, good and heavy; talented but found himself in front too soon at Sandown in April and all but ground to a halt on the run-in; well back on return to action in a warm Cheltenham handicap but this less demanding company and finish can suit; not ruled out.

Second-season chaser who isn't fully exposed and is quite interesting off a low weight; however, comes with risk having snatched defeat from the jaws of victory at Sandown (2m4f, good to soft) in April on last appearance, idling badly and pulling himself up on the run-in.

Won twice over hurdles but very much a chaser on looks and made a bright start in two early-season 2m4f handicaps (good to soft/heavy), finishing second then first; has gone off the rails a little but he patently failed to stay 3m1f under surprisingly forceful tactics in a red-hot Ultima at the Festival; the cheekpieces tried there are removed but with the tongue-tie retained; has a big run in him if back in sync.
